__Courtney Miller is pissed . . .”So what can we do?”

I suggest the best Faculty syllabi help students seeking savings by offering them options via a comprehensive list of vetted alternative textbook editions or OER. Consider the ways that Students and TA’s can help their Faculty by doing the research throughout the course of the semester to discover these commercial and free educational resource alternatives to be Faculty-vetted and added as options within the Syllabus.

Maclean’s to publish monthly in Rogers media overhaul | Toronto Star

thestar.com

Maclean’s newsmagazine, a weekly staple since the 1970s, is shifting to a monthly print schedule and some other familiar titles will disappear from news stands entirely, as Rogers Media scales back its publishing business amid declining readership and ad sales.

Three magazines will reduce their print frequency as of January. Maclean’s will be published once a month in print and weekly online, while Chatelaine and Today’s Parent will appear in print six times a year.

Flare, Sportsnet, MoneySense and Canadian Business will be available exclusively on the web and through apps, with new content posted daily. Hello! Canada will remain a weekly print publication.

“We are going where our audiences are and doubling down on digital to grow our consumer magazine brands,” said Rick Brace, president of Rogers Media.

__BCcampus’ Lauri Aesoph envisions ‘open creations’ – As of today, BCcampus and the BC Open Textbook Project will share some of its “in progress” resources as they are developed i.e. BC Open Textbook Adaptation Guide and BC Open Textbook Pressbooks Guide. I call these open creations. And if the work involves the revision of an existing work, it will be an open adaptation. __

Post by Lauri Aesoph, Manager, Open Education @ BCcampus

There aren’t enough hours in the day to create and maintain all of the support materials that me and my team would like to share with the open community. Often I wish I could link from this guide to that one…oh, but I haven’t created it yet, I say. Dang!

Then it occurred to me: Why not share these resources publicly while they’re being created? Why not follow in the footsteps of the open peer review process and permit our colleagues to not only use the information we have gathered so far, but let the open community watch and learn how we create these guides as the work happens?

Digital Print Is Tranforming the Textbook Industry

Digital Print Is Tranforming the Textbook Industry

bookbusinessmag.com

Just a few years ago, there was panic among the education book publishing segment, especially with book printers. Tablets and e-readers were all the rage. Large school districts were distributing iPads and other tablets to students en masse. A 2012 Pearson Foundation survey found that 63 percent of college students and 69 percent of high school students believed that traditional textbooks would be phased out in the next five years. Slightly more than half of college students also said they preferred reading digital textbooks over printed ones for class. It was all doom and gloom. The death of the textbook was imminent.

So much for that.

University of New Brunswick students spent $389. on textbooks this semester

cbc.ca

Students attending the University of New Brunswick spent on average $389.28 on textbooks this semester, with the average textbook costing $104.45, according to a study by the university’s student union.

The study was carried out anonymously with 348 students responding over a five-day period.

Student union vice-president Katie Beers led the TextBroke campaign, which included the study, and said the price students are paying is too high.

“While I believe that having extra course materials is vital to academic success, I believe that there are other opportunities to make education more affordable to our students,” said Beers.

Creating the “Netflix of Education.”

Breaking with the past: an interview with Pearson CTO/COO Albert Hitchcock

Breaking with the past: an interview with Pearson CTO/COO Albert Hitchcock

 

Education provider Pearson is aiming to become the ‘Netflix of education’, according to Albert Hitchcock (pictured), the firm’s chief technology and chief operating officer.Hitchcock told V3 recently that his vision is to stitch together the group’s existing education services under one platform using APIs.

“In the past we created separate digital products that have been very successful in their own right, but they’re unique instances of products. Now the approach is to create effectively a single platform,” he said. As part of this single-platform approach, Pearson has standardised its ERP estate on Oracle, having previously operated 63 separate systems. “The analogy I use is to be the Netflix for education. We want to create a single platform to deliver all educational content and services, irrespective of the age and stage of the pupil,” said Hitchcock. “The other aspect is to make that platform very future-proof, to create a micro-services, API-based architecture that enables us to deliver all of our customer experiences through that single mechanism. _ http://www.v3.co.uk/v3-uk/news/2471013/pearson-aims-to-become-the-netflix-of-education

Game-Based Learning Is The Future Of Online Education

Game-Based Learning Is The Future Of Online Education

careersandeducation.ca

The world is changing and so is the way we learn. Game-based learning is an innovative and interactive way to engage students and provide a safe but realistic learning environment.

People’s need for instant interaction and constant stimulation via apps and video games has never been stronger. In the last few years, laptops, tablets, and smartphones have become so prevalent that few people can even imagine leaving their homes without at least one electronic device.

According to a 2015 survey by the Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC), about 61 percent of households have video game consoles. In fact, the survey found that 19 million Canadians would consider themselves gamers.

Correspondingly, higher learning centres are using people’s craving for interaction and love of gaming as a powerful teaching tool. This method of learning works well because students respond to the level of engagement and interaction that video-learning modules require.

__In its landmark judgement on Friday, the Delhi High Court held that the making of photocopies of books for academic purposes did not constitute an infringement of copyright [-] It is common practice, across universities in India, for faculty to prepare reading materials and course packs made up of extracts from [10-15] academic works for classroom discussion purposes. [-] it would be difficult to expect students to purchase [these] 10-15 books every semester just to read the relevant passages necessary for the course.

Delhi University based Rameshwari Photocopying Services owner, Dharam Pal Singh, points to the index from a booklet of readings [Faculty Syllabus] for first year Sociology students. “Look at the list of readings. If students start searching for these, it will take them an year to find them. Some of them are out of publication, some are only published abroad, and some are pages from an Encyclopedia,” he says. What the photocopy shop does is to put together all the suggested readings into one bundle and sell them for approximately Rs. 800, depending on the number of pages. “If students were to go out and purchase these readings, they would have to spend a fortune. Either students get the material photocopied, or DU needs to change the reading list,” adds Dharam Pal. _ http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Delhi/postverdict-business-as-usual-on-north-campus/article9117201.ece

Ontario’s universities are asking students and their parents what excites them and what concerns them about the future, to spark a province-wide conversation about how universities can be good partners in ensuring the future is brighter for everyone.

Students and parents are asked to imagine the future and their place in it, in an online survey at ontariosuniversities.ca. They can also join the conversation on social media @futuringON and #futuring.

“We’re asking people ‘what keeps you up at night?’” says David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Council of Ontario Universities (COU), who is kicking off the #futuring initiative today on behalf of all 21 Ontario universities.

__Ontario Landlord Tenant Board needs new rules to evict problem tenants faster, expert says _ Harry Fine, a former adjudicator at Ontario’s Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB), said once problem tenants get their hands on the keys, it’s easy for them to exploit the system and drag out the eviction process. “The legislation has to change,” Fine, who now works as a paralegal, told CBC News. By appealing, Regan was able to stay at the condo for another eight months before the court got around to rejecting his appeal. Fine said the Ontario government should create a test, or set some pre-conditions when it comes to filing an appeal. Otherwise, he said, problem tenants like Regan know they’ll get eight more months of free rent. Court documents obtained by CBC News show Regan owed the landlord more than $25,000 by the time he was evicted, but he never paid. _ http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/ontario-landlord-rules-1.3777339

Interactive lecture halls enhance higher ed

universitybusiness.com

Students enrolled in media ethics at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this fall walked into a lecture hall that looked radically different than two years ago.

Gone is the stadium-style seating. Now the room, used for a wide range of courses, has 100 rolling swivel chairs with adjustable tables and nine mounted video screens. After associate professor Lois Boynton gives a mini-lecture or shows a video, student teams of four to six work on an ethical journalism dilemma. Then they regroup to present their conclusions to the full class.

“I love the open teaching space,” says Boynton, who taught in the hall, Greenlaw 101, before it was renovated. “We can all see each other and interact much more effectively than in a lecture hall with fixed seats.”

Amid rising college costs, college textbooks are often overlooked. New data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics finds that textbook prices have increased by 88% in the past decade, compared to a 63% increase in college tuition and fees. For students and families already struggling to afford college tuition, hundreds of dollars for course materials often comes out-of-pocket and can be a serious barrier to student success.

Institutionalized

hapgood.us

Jim Groom has a sort-of-reply to my post on bringing student-produced OER into the heart of the institution, and Stephen Downes has a reply as well. Neither seems to buy the idea that open practice should be institutionalized. I find this very odd, frankly, and wonder if we are working under different definitions. This is my attempt to explain what institutionalization is about and why it is important.

One warning — for those who haven’t followed the conversation so far, this is likely to feel a bit inside baseball. Continue at your peril, as 90% of this is a direct reply to Jim and Stephen.

__Stephen Downes posts a reply to MC _ Institutions and Openness _ http://halfanhour.blogspot.ca/2016/09/institutions-and-openness.html _ Stephen says “. . . to institutionalize is to set up policy and technical architecture inside an institution. There’s no other place these things can really happen. And my response is, contra Caulfield, doing this does not ensure persistence. Indeed, quite the opposite: if your innovation depends on an institution to survive, it won’t.” __ and Jim Groom tweets “A truly brilliant post, [Downes] raises the whole argument a level. I’ll need some time to to regroup, but a fun challenge :)”

__” – 88% [of Students] said they are more responsive to brands [i.e. Chegg] that give back to the community, while 70% feel that the brands they buy from need to focus on responsible business practices. “Students aren’t looking for real-time customer service. What they were looking for is corporate values where companies are seen giving back to the community and they generally follow responsible business practices,” __

Here’s How Brands Can Connect With College Students Throughout the School Year

As students across the country head back to school after a few months of relaxation,

global media agency UM partnered with Chegg to help brands better understand how they can connect with 18 to 24-year-olds as they make the transition away from beach vacations and back to papers and exams.

For brands looking to target this group, who will spend $163 billion on non-essential items in the next year, connecting with them as they head back to campus is important, but UM’s study found that the back-to-school season isn’t the only time to make an impact with college students. There are other key milestones and times when brands can connect.

Textbook broke campaigns are popping up around campuses as textbook prices continue to soar and students are becoming aware of the free, open educational resources (OER) available to them.

__Open Textbook Policy support requires more than a signature or sad-face-photo, support is validated with the commitment to find and use OER exclusively, now. The sooner that Faculty and Students actually use OER, the better. . . personal experiences using OER will inform the way forward. _ The Student Society could also provide information i.e. be giving away ‘Textbookbroke’ flash drives loaded with links to all the available OER and cost saving options out there – info & options to consider before they enter the bookstore.

Good suggestion, thanks for sharing.

__”In short, we believe that fair dealing in the Copyright Act is serving its intended purpose: enabling fair portions from works of creativity or scholarship to be drawn upon in learning environments, thereby stimulating innovation and the creation of new research and new knowledge.

Not a Free for All: Canadian University Libraries Spending Hundreds of Millions on Licensing

Not a Free for All: Canadian University Libraries Spending Hundreds of Millions on Licensing

michaelgeist.ca
As students across Canada head back to school this week, the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL), which represents 31 member libraries, issued a reminder that Canadian education spends hundreds of millions of dollars every year on content licensing. Access Copyright and the publishing community have tried to paint the Canadian situation as a free-for-all, but the reality is that educational institutions, libraries, and students are still buying books and licensing content. In fact, recent U.S. data shows that textbook costs are increasing far faster than any other education cost.

__Thanks, Michael. Fair enough to leave readers to discover for themselves where “Some voices in the publishing community and associated lobbyists have stated in the media that the education market has evaporated as a result of users’ fair dealing rights.” _ perhaps the PwC Report is an unbiased voice: Economic Impacts of the Canadian Educational Sector’s Fair Dealing Guidelines _ http://www.accesscopyright.ca/media/94983/access_copyright_report.pdf _

Elsevier’s New Patent for Online Peer Review Throws a Scare Into Open-Source Advocates

chronicle.com

Patent application filed June 28, 2012 to protect its own proprietary system.The concern revolves around the patent Elsevier received for its five-year-old “article-transfer service,” a propriety online system the company uses to manage journal-article submissions and the ensuing peer reviews.

The service also includes a feature that allows articles rejected by one of the company’s 2,500 journals to be automatically referred to another relevant Elsevier journal for consideration, with the authors’ consent. The patent describes the driver of the referral system as a “journal-recommendation tool.”
